Phew.........it's Tuesday.  That means Monday is over and we are on our way to Friday.
Why wouldn't you love Tuesday?
Plus it's RaNDoM!

Go see Keely over at The UnMom!
Check out others' RaNDoMNeSS and write your own.

Link up!  Everybody's doing it!

* So, it's Tuesday.  I'm a little disappointed because we've had a long- long weekend and tomorrow it's BACK to SCHOOL! :(  The kids didn't just have MLK day off.  They have today off too!

* We're taking Parker to breakfast as soon as he gets up.
So that will be a late lunch/early dinner around 2!?!!!?

* Garrett just left 5 minutes ago for Omaha - yeah - Nebraska.
He and a friend are flying to Omaha, going to a concert tonight, and taking a crack o' dawn flight in the morning that gets them to school at 8:15 - 15 minutes late.  Remember when you were a senior and you did crazy stuff like that?  No? Me either.

*Garrett is seeing

They were going to go in October when Owl City was in Denver, but that would make too much sense the concert was on Homecoming.
They didn't want to miss their senior Homecoming.
Turns out the dance was awful and they should have gone to the concert.
So they made plans to see  Owl City in a "nearby" venue.
Wouldn't you know that 5 minutes after they made their plane reservations, they discovered that guess who is coming BACK to Denver in April?

* I busted into Trammell's Facebook account.
I'm a bad mom with no respect for privacy.
On his mission, he is not allowed to check FB or his personal email account.
I have his email password and I clean out his mailbox about every three months.
I saw something that ALARMED me.
It was an email from Facebook.
Who has 200 friend requests and 96 page suggestions?
I broke into his account and started cleaning it up.
Wow - that could be a full time job!

* Guess what?
Tyler - the other half of the Bonehead Brothers, just submitted his mission papers.
What this means is that he filled out an application (physical, personal info, recommendations, interviews) and marked that he would be available to leave on his mission May 1st.
You can submit your mission application 100 days before your available date.
So, his papers are in and he will find out in about 2-3 weeks exactly WHERE and WHEN he is going!
Any guesses?
I'm not guessing.  I don't like guessing.

Well, I'm sick of waiting for Parker to get up.
I'm going to go have some chocolate chip cookies and Coke for breakfast.
Get on over to Keely's!
Have a Happy RaNDoM!

Well of course it makes sense to fly to Nebraska for a concert and then fly back at the crack of dawn to make it to school. lol

It's kind of fun spying on your kids on FB. Heck, they're probably spying on us.

Have a great Tuesday!

It makes sense to me to fly to Nebraska for a concert. I was just checking to see where I could go to see Billy Joel and Elton John. (Doesn't look like anything will work.)

I did things like that my sr year and now I think back on it and wonder srsly did I have a brain and why did my parents not give any input? Ha ha Omaho or BUST!

SO what are your feelings on strawberry muffins with amazing sugary frosting that disguise themselves as cupcakes because of said frosting? I think I'm in love!! And I'm changing their name to cupcakes :)

Good luck to Tyler! I'm sure it will be the trip of a lifetime...no matter the destination.

I would so take a trip like Garrett is on! I love that kind of stuff. I hope he and his friend have a great time.

Coke and cookies is my kinda breakfast! Hope you enjoyed it!

Happy RTT!

Raven said...

Coke and cookies for breakfast? Now I'm hungry. But I don't have coke or cookies. lol

Have a great RTT!

Terra H. said...

Can't say I've ever heard of Owl City. Hope they have a great time.

Margaret said...

You will have to let us know where he ends up going. I always like to hear where they go.

Mrsbear said...

My daughter loves Owl City. If I let her fly to see them on a school night, I'm pretty sure she erect a monument to me as the best mom ever.

I love that you cleaned out your son's neglected FB account.

Happy RTT.

Sounds like a busy day! 200 friend requests seems like a LOT all right. Methinks you were wise to check it out.
Hugs and blessings,

You were in your son's facebook? And he still talks to you? lol

Going on a plane to go to a concert? I wish that I could do that!

Your breakfast sounded good!

TheSingleGirl said...

Ahhh. I used to sleep until 2. Once upon a time.

200 friend requests? WHOA. And hey, no shame. Once The Cute (and her future siblings) are old enough I'm going to be ALL OVER whatever socialnetworkycomputerwhateverdevice type thing they're using. IF i even allow such a device in my home.

Yup yup.

Omaha for a concert? I hope it's a good concert.
